that is about as far as i can go with that controversial story. as secretary brown alluded to, we associate this period with mcnamara, and with vietnam. but mcnamara's involvement in a whole series of other crises, both foreign and domestic, is simply remarkable. we've heard about the dominican republic, the nato crisis, the middle east war, czechoslovakian invasion, demonstrations in the streets of the united states. any one of these crises could have defined a presidency. for example, if we look at president jimmy carter's administration, it involved notable successes, but it's best remembered for the iranian hostage issue. when the iranians took over the american embassy in tehran, and then held hostage americans for more than a year. think about mcnamara. in january 1968, the north koreans seized the uss pueblo naval vessel on the high seas. they in effect held a naval crew hostage for more than a year before releasing them. though the pueblo is a mere footnote to the tumultuous events of 1968. robert mcnamara was involved as a major participant. we all know that. but what's remarkable

as secretary brown suggested as mcnamara's war. whatever the difficulties of the moment, he exuded a certainty that promised eventual success. in fact, we now know his public confidence far outlasted the emergence of profound private doubts about both the winnability of the war and indeed ultimately its purposes. and his departure from the pentagon in 1968, as much i think as lbj's march 31st speech of that year marked the glorious end of an era once bright with promise. as the war provoked increasingly nasty divisions in the united states, mcnamara became a target for critics from both left and right. unaware of his muted tightly constrained and largely internalized descent, doves viewed him as the technocrat as his blind faith in technology and statistics plunged the united states into a destructive quagmire. hawks, on the other hand, announced with growing venom his alleged refusal to give the military the freedom and the means to win a war, in their view, imminently winnable. in my experience, talking with veterans over the last 40 years, only the name jane fonda is likely to provoke more

the supreme court decision on brown was right, they would drive you out of the state either by fear, by cutting you off from all your friends, by cutting your wife off. i mean, they just made-- in effect, they snuffed out freedom of speech. so freedom of speech was a very real issue in this thing-- whether an editor had the right, the willingness, the courage to say the things that in his heart-- and i should say "her," because hazel brannon smith in mississippi in holmes county was just so ferocious and so courageous. and so punished. punished. i mean, they just stripped her, and they set out to crush her economically, as they did so many other people. so these were very nice, genteel, soft police states. and, ken, i would just say that it was an accident, i think, that david halberstam came to work for the tennessean at the moment a very bright, a very-- a very courageous group of young african-american students had enrolled themselves in four local institutions of higher education: fisk, meharry, tennessee state, and american baptist college. and those young students really began
